Reader comment on item: [The Islamist-Leftist] Allied Menace
in response to reader comment: noise pollution

Submitted by Edward (South Africa), Jul 15, 2008 at 01:15

So you think calling for prayer five times a week is excessive? Using what gadget and criteria to draw the line between acceptable and excessive? And additionally you have the nerve to suggest that the muslims have all been brainwashed to hate others? I want to put it to you that it is only you, dfwhite19438, who hates others on account of their religion. It is HATRED and not noise pollution that is causing you to argue that the call for prayer is an inconvenience. I want to ask you to go back to my article and read it over again, this time with no bias.

If you manage to read it without bias, you will be able to see that actually, it doesnt do you any harm if the muslims pray 100 times a day. You will be able to realise that people who live near airports are subjected to some of the highest levels of noise a human eard drum can receive (24 hours a day) but none has ever even gone to a clinic with an ear problem. The reason is (simply) that a plane taking off or landing is not calling anyone to come for prayers.

You will be able to see that Muslims are actually RICH people despite how many times they pray and that the poorest people in the world concetrated in africa's miserable localities are actually not muslims. Incase you still cannot see all this, try to force your mind to absorb it in because it is the truth. The number of times one faith prays (say, 5 a day) does not depend on how many times the others pray (once a week) and it does not have the remotest effect on people of other faiths unless those people, like you there carry in their hearts a stinking hatred for others. You need to clean up your heart today and start looking at things objectively. I mean today.
